  Modern History Sourcebook: T. H. Huxley: Science and Culture, 1880
Whatever may be the exact magnitude of his services to pure science, he was a master in the writing of English for the purposes of exposition and controversy, and a powerful intellectual influence on almost all classes in his generation.
They were of opinion that science is speculative rubbish; that theory and practice have nothing to do with one another; and that the scientific habit of mind is an impediment, rather than an aid, in the conduct of ordinary affairs.
And, as to the desirableness of a wider culture than that yielded by science alone, it is to be recollected that the improvement of manufacturing processes is only one of the conditions which contribute to the prosperity of industry.

 Science Quotes
Science is facts; just as houses are made of stone, so is science made of facts; but a pile of stones is not a house, and a collection of facts is not necessarily science.
Science is not formal logic–it needs the free play of the mind in as great a degree as any other creative art.
Experimental science is the queen of sciences and the goal of all speculation.

 Science Programs
Science is simply common sense at its best that is, rigidly accurate in observation, and merciless to fallacy in logic.
One way we do this is through Science Comes Alive!; a program that places ESC science volunteers in classrooms as advisors to teachers who may not be comfortable conducting hands-on science experiments with their students.
Science Fairs are an excellent way to make science fun for large numbers of students.

 The Vital Science: Ch.2
Ideally, science hails the truth wherever it is and no matter how unpleasant it may be; art has no such obligations but takes from science only that part of the truth which it finds palatable at any point in time.
Now, at first sight Macaulay's expression of his conviction, in his famous 'Milton' of 1825, that science must soon become the factor most to be reckoned with in the evolution of poetic language is a good deal more generous than the Newtonian-Benthamite devaluation of poetry as a kind of ingenious nonsense.
As the terms of any of the exacter sciences approach the symbology of mathematics and thereby retreat from the warm equivocalities of the language of men, it is inevitable that 'however many we use, and however we may perpetuate them by writing, we never could make any kind of literature out of them'.

Interestingly, the word science has as many definitions as there are textbooks and "science" writers, all of which ignore the dictionary.
The last time I defined science using the dictionary, one Ph.D. wrote rather heatedly that he had looked up the word science in four dictionaries and "they were all wrong!" That is, they agreed with my definition and did not agree with his.
While it is called a "Law" of Science, it is merely a "Reasonable Faith!" When you get on an airplane, you do not know with absolute certainty it will go forward, but you are so convinced that it will (if the engine runs right) that you never even think of it.

 - Prometheus: The Science Policy Weblog   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-30)
Given the attention currently being devoted to the politicization of science, perhaps it is time for the AAAS to revisit its own guidelines and procedures for engaging issues of politics and policy in a way that provides clear leadership for the scientific community.
The Consortium for Science, Policy, and Outcomes (CSPO) at Arizona State University (ASU) seeks to fill a new, tenure-track faculty position in the general field of science, technology, and society available for August 2005.
He writes, “How can we recruit the best young people to science careers if they foresee a grim funding picture for their future work?” Of course, it might be possible to argue that $130 billion in funding might still allow the recruitment of a few of the best young people.

 Science and Religion - Cambridge University Press
Science and Religion assesses the impact of social, political and intellectual change upon Anglican circles, with reference to Oxford University in the decades which followed the French Revolution and the Napoleonic wars.
More particularly, the career of Baden Powell, father of the more famous founder of the Boy Scout movement, offers material for an important case-study in intellectual and political reorientation: his early militancy in right-wing Anglican movements slowly turned to a more tolerant attitude towards radical theological, philosophical and scientific trends.
